I spent the morning watching MP3 videos... and now I want one! LOL.. Jay Leno's youtube video is a good one. I was wondering how you can stop without putting down your feet, but that one explains it.. you can put on the tilt lock when you are going slower than 9 mph? I bet it is tough to ride at 8 mph with the tilt lock on?

mm.. you really find the nice ones.. I am digging that RX50..

one of the men I ride scooters with in Florida has two Tomas mopeds... both apart and will probably never run again, but he bought them new and can't part with them..

I would rate the RX50 as "pretty hard to find a mint one, but not too hard to find one beat up".
Online info says only 2,000 total production. USA only. Shares an engine with yamaha YSR. fyi.
